At Elvetham Dental Care we offer a full range of general dental treatments from a simple NHS check-up to more complex restorative procedures, orthodontics and even dental implants.

As Elvetham Dental Care is both an NHS and private practice we can offer private treatments for NHS patients without loss of a patient’s NHS entitlement. This could include using aesthetic filling materials or more advanced restorative treatments.

We recommend that patients visit us every six months for a routine check-up and if possible, see the hygienist at the same time to maintain and or improve their overall oral health.

If treatment is needed we are able to offer these services on both the NHS and privately.

Fillings

When a tooth has decayed the infected tissues are carefully removed and a filling placed to seal and replace the lost tooth structures. Fillings can be undertaken using several materials including amalgam (silver fillings) or composite resins (white fillings).

Crowns

Bridges

Crowns and Bridges

When a tooth has broken, worn down or is decayed so much that a filling is no longer an option, a dental crown or bridge is the ideal solution. Made in a dental lab to your exact specifications, a dental crown or bridge is a prosthetic that is bonded over your existing tooth (literally ‘crowning’ it). Crowns are also used to secure a dental bridge in place.

The crown or bridge procedure

Getting a crown or bridge usually takes two or more appointments. Firstly, you’ll need to have your tooth prepared to receive a crown or bridge, which involves the dentist gently filing and smoothing your damaged tooth into a streamlined shaped that will accommodate your restoration perfectly. Depending on your preferences these procedures can be done with or without a local anaesthetic. Once your tooth is ready, your dentist will take your dental impressions, which a dental lab will use to fabricate your bespoke dental restoration. You’ll be fitted with a temporary restoration while you wait (usually around two weeks) and return to the dentist to have your permanent crown or bridge bonded firmly into place.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Elvetham Dental Care is devoted to restoring and enhancing the health and natural beauty of our patients' teeth and smile by using state-of -the art dentistry procedures and technology in a safe, clean and relaxing environment.

The veneers procedure

If you’ve decided to get porcelain veneers, your dentist will need to prepare your teeth by filing away an ultra-thin layer of enamel, proportionate to the thickness of each veneer. Porcelain veneers are made to meet your requirements by a dental lab, using your dental impressions. When they’re ready, you’ll return to the dentist to have the veneers permanently bonded into place and fine-tuned by hand. The great advantage of porcelain veneers is that they can be a long-term solution if well looked after, and they don’t stain as easily as natural teeth.

Root Canal Treatment

Endodontics (root canals)

Sometimes a tooth may be badly damaged due to decay or trauma. The nerve and blood vessels inside the tooth pulp may become infected and a root canal treatment is needed to remove the infected tissues and seal the canal. Many patients are worried about receiving root canal treatment. However, the procedure is very successful and results in little or no pain. The treatment is similar to having a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of the tooth and your personal circumstances.

Endodontic treatment can be very successful as we use modern materials and procedures to ensure we can save as many teeth as possible. Endodontic treatment helps maintain your natural smile and you can continue to eat and smile with confidence.
